State-of-the-art playground coming to Mooloolaba
The first part of the new Northern Park in Mooloolaba opened to our community today, November 9, 2021. This includes a new viewing platform at the Alex Bluff Foreshore Park, a beautiful boardwalk and staircase linking the boardwalk to Mooloolaba Esplanade, plus significant embankment revegetation and plantings around a new grass open space.
The new infrastructure is part of the greater Mooloolaba Foreshore Revitalisation project which will increase public beachfront park by 40 per cent and include new community spaces and amenities, all of which aim to enhance and celebrate the natural Sunshine Coast way of life.
Ahead of the rest of the park opening in 2022, Division 4 Councillor Joe Natoli was excited to share news that a state-of-the-art playground was in the works.
“I’m absolutely thrilled to see this beautiful new viewing platform and boardwalk open to our community, but one of the pieces of community infrastructure I’m most looking forward to is the new adventure playground,” Cr Natoli said.
“This will be the most significant playground council has delivered and it’s a one-of-a-kind design especially created for our Mooloolaba Foreshore.
“The adventure playground will be positioned at the southern section of the Stage 1: Northern Parkland area, between a new sheltered barbecue area and the coastal pathway.
“The three main play elements will be a climbing net, an adventure play tower and an extended swing set, which will have active and inclusive play elements for all to enjoy.
“There will be something for everyone at this exciting new playground, and it will cater to a wide range of ages and abilities.”
The adventure playground is now being constructed along with a new public amenity, sheltered barbecue area and an accessible path that will link the new boardwalk to Mooloolaba.
